The Adventures of Bunny Bravo

Bunny Bravo

Hi friends & family!

It has been too long, but I want to share an exiting new project that I am involved with. I am working with producer Mychal Simka to help bring and animated children’s film to screens large and small.

With an all-star cast and over a dozen pop songs, Adventures of Bunny Bravo is Simka Entertainment’s 14th animated film. The movie will be produced in both English and Spanish following the success of Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos – Producer Mychal Simka’s first and only other film released in English and Spanish – which made over $9 million at the box office.

We are currently raising money through Microventures and IndieGoGo’s equity crowdfunding portal. Proceeds from the raise will go towards the creation of deliverables required for distribution in the U.S., UK, Canada, Mexico, and South America and marketing the project to cable, pay-per-view, premium video-on-demand, and DVD buyers in those markets.

There are some pretty great perks available for investors, including a Bunny Bravo comic book that we will be spearheading.

Check out the campaign, and share with your friends and family!

Thank you for your continued support!

Henchmen Graphic Novel on Kickstarter – Ending This Week!

Hello internet friends! I know I don’t update much these days, and when I do it seems to be because of a Kickstarter project. This post is different…actually no it’s not. Jamison and I kickstarting Henchmen again! We’ve actually been live for the month and we are wrapping up this week, so please help us smash through a stretch goal or two before the week is up. We have some great tiers including a custom copy of the book with custom cover art by artist Ryan Howe!

There is more! Mark Waid wrote the foreword. Talk about cool – Jamison and I have both been fans since we were young pups first reading comics! Making this book has been a lot of fun and we’ve been fortunate to meet some great folks over the past year – some of those folks are also signed up to provide some cool print artwork if we unlock some additional stretch goals, including Transmetropolitan (one of my all time favorite comic books) artist Darick Robertson!

Scoundrel Society – A New Game from Action Phase Games

Hi friends – a quick note/post to let you know & remind you that Action Phase Games has a new game in the works called Scoundrel Society. If you remember, last year I helped found APG and we had a great launch with our inaugural project, Heroes Wanted.

At the time of this post, the project is just $300 shy of funding, so if you like board games and you want to help me and the team out, be sure to back today!

Thanks again!

That Time My Dad And I Rode In A Car With The Guy That Won The Indy 500

Hot lap with Juan Pablo Montoya.

There is nothing like a long weekend to dust off the old blog. Sunday was the 99th running of the Indy 500. I spent the day building a tree house with my brother and father. While relaxing after a day of pulling siding up with ropes, my father informed me that Juan Pablo Montoya had won the race. Way back on July 26th, 2012 my father and I were afforded the opportunity to sit in the back seat of a car that Mr. Montoya was driving… with one hand on the wheel… at top speed… while casually discussing the standard features of the car (AC and satellite radio)… around the very same track. It was awesome, and here are the pictures and a video to prove it.

Yard of bricks.

Comic Book Conventions – Photos From The Year So Far & A Write Up On The Indypendent Show!

I’ve been to a couple of comic book conventions, and plan to be at a couple more. I especially want to share a quick review of the show I was at this past weekend:

The Indypendent Show

The Indypendent show was honestly a bit of a surprise for me. Due to crazy schedules and having a spread out creative team on Henchmen, I quite frankly wasn’t sure if going to a show focussed on local talent and independent publishers would be very fruitful or honestly very fun.

I was very happy that I was completely wrong. I met some flat-out amazingly talented people at the show, both attending and exhibiting, and got to share the comic creative and business process with my son, who was able to sell some of his original artwork and in turn buy artwork from some of the most patient, passionate, and caring folks I’d met in a long time. He learned a lot, and I learned a lot.

The format and size of the show was perfect for a one day event  – nice and relaxed and time to actually talk to people! As a bonus, my son was able to get this awesome one page comic from Trae Dorn, Jackie Crofts, Lee Cherolis, G. Pike, and yours truly!

As you might imagine, super heroes are a thing at my house:

Here is a quick recap of the year so far in photos!
